   For the File system method of access IndexDir is a space-separated list
of    files and directories to index. Use a
   forward slash as the path separator in MS Windows.

Please reduce your config file down to about five lines before posting.

First get indexing to work without trying to filter PDF files.

Take it one step at a time.
